Dear M Girl ,
I told my mom that I want to be an actress. She said that I should try to audition for acting roles. I love to act, but I get really bad stage fright and I'm really shy in front of people I don't know. What should I do to get started?
I think it's great that your mom is supportive of your dream to be an actress! You can break out of your shell and learn more about acting by joining your school's drama club or auditioning for the next play. You'll learn all kinds of warm-ups, improv games, and skills that will help you get less nervous on stage. Besides giving you a chance to perform in front of people, joining theater activities in your school will help you find the perfect monologues for the type of parts you might want to audition for in the future! You won't be anxious about auditioning if you're well prepared! More importantly, remember to have fun and don't stress out about it! Keep me posted!
